It's been quite the week, at least for me. Bluejay's retirement surprised me, and I hoped that he was coming back. Now Rahj is accepting applications for the position of IBG CO. If you're interested in either applying for yourself or supporting somebody else, email him at

I am also taking this opportunity to rewrite the IBG ITOD rules so that the 1 report in the last week rule no longer exists and hopefully the rest of them will be simpler and clearer.

Also, this Newsletter has a slightly different style. Let me know whether it's better or worse. And I am more than willing to hear anybody's opinion on anything conerning the IBG. What should be different. What's working well. Your comments will make a difference. And if I missed anybody this time around, just let me know and I'll make note of it in the next newsletter or newsflash.

And wow. Wildcard beats Dagger by one point! That's a new record as far as I know in the history of the RS. Congrats to both Wildcard and Dagger for such a close finish.

- The XWA Undergrad has an opening. If you're interested in being an instructor, please talk with CMDR Cole Landfarer (
- Also, the XWA Undergrad is looking for a new XO and SO. If you're interested in either, also talk to Cole (see email address above)
- We will be starting a cooperative SP tour with the Retribution Fleet soon.
- LGN Bluejay Farscape, the IBG CO, resigns from the Rebel Squadrons.
- We have melees with the Star Vipers every Saturday this month at 3PM EST. To get on the irc channel for it, type the following into mIRC's status window:

5. NightWolf Squadron, 3 reports, 42 kills at 4,864 points
6. Draco Squadron, 1 report, 23 kills at 1,769 points

New Rules:
(These will replace the rules that are currently on the IBG ITOD site starting with this next mission)

1) The mission may not be tampered with in any way after its release, not even to fix bugs. If a serious bug is found in a mission, the IBG CO will authorize somebody to fix it and then send out a fixed version.

2) In order to be eligible for the IBG Gold Wings a pilot must submit a screenshot of his mission debriefing or sim chamber mission stats. As the IBG CO deals with the scores, he is inelligible for this medal.

3) The IBG CO's ruling is final on all matters.

Next Mission:
Lt. Col. Orian LaCarde is making our next mission, which should hopefully be finished in a week. It will be kicking off the start of our tour with Retribution Fleet. So, while we wait, fly XWA, have fun and hang out in #ibg sometime. We don't bite...I don't think.

- Lieutenant Colonel Han Suul
Dagger 4 (Acting IBG CO)
